"Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive," by writer Elbert Hubbard and "I'm an idealist. I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way," from poet Carl Sandburg are some examples of humorous positive quotes.
Some humorous positive quotes are intended to inspire the reader toward success in life. Examples of this type of quote include, "Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please," stated by writer Mark Twain, "Sometimes you just have to put on lipstick and pretend to be psyched," said by actress Mindy Kaling and, "If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month," which is attributed to President Theodore Roosevelt.
Other humorous positive quotes are sarcastic observations about life in general. Some examples of this type of quote are: "Parents always make their worst mistakes with their oldest children. That's when parents know the least and care the most, so they're more likely to be wrong and also more likely to insist that they're right," said by writer Orson Scott Card, and, "Too much agreement kills a chat," said by activist Eldridge Cleaver.
